Dauphin Kings Three ★’s Of The Week

October 19, 2015

3-stars-banner4039

A quiet week for the Dauphin Kings resulted in one win and one loss on home ice against the Winnipeg Blues and Portage Terriers. They’re now 5-5-0 on the MJHL season.

On Friday Dauphin beat the Winnipeg Blues 7-4 on the strength of timely scoring and some good penalty killing. Despite giving the Blues 11 chances on the evening the Kings were able to kill off nine of them and pick up the two points.

Saturday saw Dauphin lose 2-0 to the Portage Terriers. There were a lot of positives in the game including the team’s Penalty Kill and defensive play. However the Kings were unable to beat 20 year old goalie Nathan Park and too many untimely penalties did them in.

This week is another one that features just two games for Dauphin as the schedule remains a bit slow. On Friday the Kings will be in Neepawa to battle the Natives. You can listen to the contest on 730 CKDM, the Pre Game Show kicks off at 7:15pm with puck drop at 7:30pm. After Friday they return to Credit Union Place to take on the Steinbach Pistons, that affair begins at 7:30pm. In total the Kings play just 10 games in October, next month they’ll take part in 11 before the schedule starts to get a little more hectic.

Three ‘s Of The Week

3. Drake Bodie

Drake Bodie picked up another goal and an assist in the Kings Friday night victory against the Winnipeg Blues. Bodie has been arguably Dauphin’s best 20 year old over the last two weeks. In that span he has seven points (4G, 3A). Even though no one scored against Portage on Saturday night for the Kings Bodie was still one of Dauphin’s best players despite sitting in the penalty box for 10 minutes between the second and third periods.

2. Jarrod Schamerhorn

Jarrod Schamerhorn is 3-1 in his time so far the Dauphin Kings with his only official loss coming on Saturday night against Portage. Ironically Saturday’s loss was likely Schamerhorn’s best game as a Dauphin King, he made 33 saves on 35 shots and allowed just two goals. He was also key in Dauphin killing off a lengthy 5 on 3 in the late stages of the second period. On Friday Schamerhorn turned aside 23 of 27 shots for the victory against Winnipeg. His numbers are slowly starting to get better, with his 3-1 record he has a 3.64 Goals Against Average and a .876 Save Percentage.

1. Matthew Greening

A goal and two assists last week sees local forward Matthew Greening as the number one star this week. He was solid in both games over the weekend and got things going for the Kings at home against Winnipeg when he scored just six seconds in. Every other game this month Greening has scored a goal and added two assists, we’ll see if that trend continues on Friday when the Kings visit the Neepawa Natives. If the Dauphinite keeps this pace up for the rest of the month he will win the Rookie of the Month award from the MJHL.
